Yoga Therapy for Common Ailments

Introduction

     Yoga therapy can contribute to the management, prevention and, sometimes, cure of a wide range of medical conditions including:
·         Musculoskeletal disorders (e.g. low back pain, frozen shoulder)
·         Respiratory disorders (e.g. asthma, bronchitis)
·         Cardiovascular disorders (e.g. hypertension, heart conditions)
·         Digestive disorders (e.g. hyperacidity, irritable bowel syndrome)
·         Metabolic disorders (e.g. diabetes, thyroid conditions)
·         Neurological disorders (e.g. multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease)
·         Cancer
·         Headaches and migraine
·         Stress, anxiety and depression
     
     We currently focus mainly on low back pain and sciatica.  But through our database we can identify yoga therapists competent to work any of the above conditions and let enquirers know of any within reach of them.  We do not, at present have an online service for the delivery of yoga therapy for conditions other than low back pain and sciatica.
